Which of the following best describes the institution’s approach to rainwater management?:
Comprehensive policies, plans or guidelines that require LID practices for all new projects

A brief description of the institution’s green infrastructure and LID practices:

The 2006 Storm Water Master Plan creates a system to percolate all stormwater within the campus footprint. The Library and Business Information and Technology Building (A2) and Collge Humanities Arts and Social Studies (A3) use LID site specific measures. A new percolation pond was constructed between 6 and 7th avenues to reuce campus wide flows to the existing storm drain system. The Draft Updated Campus Master Plan requires more site specific LID.

A brief description of the institution’s rainwater management policy, plan, and/or guidelines that supports the responses above:

The majority of stormwater is collected on campus and is percolated into the ground via strategically located percolation ponds. All new buildings are built to LEED silver standards and mostly percolate stormwater locally or on campus. No stormwater flows to surface waters of the United States.
